Here is a written copy, to accompany the initial video. Please share & post everywhere. We must show the country & the world, that we are the majority in America, & that the hideous hypocrisy of this administration must be voted out.

They do not represent who we really are.

Letter To Lindsey

"I wasn't sure originally , to whom I should address the video, but then I realized in the last few days that the most logical recipients would be Lindsey, & his colleagues. And I will not use the title senator,nor will I even use the title mister. That would indicate that I have a modicum of respect, and I have none.

I have not been a Republican for many years. I have not been a Christian for many years. Because I cannot fathom the hypocrisy, the hideousness, the racism, the bigotry,the sexism, the entitlement of these two sets of what used to be proper institutions, proper gatherings, proper groupings.
They are no longer. They don't represent the country. They don't represent women, people of color, anyone who's been denigrated or victimized. They are cheats,thieves,liars, phony bullies who are intent on keeping their ill-gotten power.

They represent simply, the dying gasps of desperate good ' ole boys. Isn't that an interesting choice of names for how people refer to you.? As if we knew all along and that the boys club is just a group of entitled little brats who stamp their feet, & throw temper tantrums,especially when they can't have their way.

I was raised in a fairly privileged setting on Philadelphia's Mainline. I was educated in private schools, summered in Europe, & basically left home at 15, because I thought the lifestyle was boring,entitled,insular,& not very interesting.

At 20,I was working for Chuck Tilbury, as a travel agent in the Beverly Hills Hotel. He used to call me the "little pistol". One of many monikers, some flattering, some not, that I acquired in time, as women who have opinions and strong personalities often do. I was invited to a famous hotel in Las Vegas on a professional fam trip, & I invited my Mom to share the trip with me.

So let me give you an idea Lindsey, about how much you you don't know what you're talking about. Because you've never been dragged down a hallway on your back by your hair, where you can feel the blood trickling through your scalp, and the rug burns on the backs of your legs. You don't know what it's like to have a knife held at your throat. You don't know what it's like to have someone try to abuse you, rob you, or rape you you. You don't know what it's like to have someone try and stuff a sheet into your mouth because your screams were so loud, they were heard on four floors. And yet, no one came to help...

Still I remained calm enough, & still I did not scream when security finally came. I repeated my tale quietly and calmly, & watched in amazement, as nothing happened, & no one even tried to go after the attacker. I was invited professionally, I thought, & sharing a room with my Mom. Surely, something would be done.

It is a chilling memory to recall that someone in my own entourage actually said quietly "you know she used to date a black guy so you know,maybe"... leaving the sentence unfinished. It was clear he believed that my falling in love with a beautiful, brilliant, talented man who happened to be black, would of course mean that I might welcome the advances of a filthy,drunken, violent man who was also black. Wow.Hideously Impressive, but I guess that's the way that insular people like you think.

But, until you have had a knee pressing on your sternum, & you can't breathe, & believe you are going to die, Lindsey you need to be quiet. Because you quite simply don't know what you're talking about. You and your cohorts believe that temper tantrums over imagined conspiracies. and public accusations, justify a rabid rage, & hysterical commentary.

So then, what are we justified in doing? What's the acceptable behavior for the survivors? Dr. Ford behaved so elegantly,& was so soft-spoken. She's much more ladylike than I could have been, & justifiably,under those conditions. But I in my fashion, I retain my dignity as well, & we are still not screaming.

Lindsey I'm still not throwing a temper tantrum. Lindsey I'm still calm & dignified. I am not a victim. I am a survivor. And you your colleagues would not last a day in the shoes of most women. In the shoes of young black men. In the shoes of any person of color. You would not last. You and your cohorts have built lives around a precarious & false facade of delusional entitlement. & wouldn't survive the grittiness of most people's everyday experiences.

Most of the time, especially in these last few years, we've seen cheating, lying, stealing, bribing, bullying & constant corruption & subterfuge with smoke & mirrors. All the traits of true cowardice at the highest imaginable levels of our society.

Our history has been peppered with some dark moments, but we've always rebounded and done better as we learned from the past. This is the first time we've rebounded, and fallen to new lows.
At this point, watching that man postulating for a position on the Supreme Court, & again, I will not validate him by using even his name, blubber and blast his way through the hearings, I can only laugh bitterly at the ironic double standard. If a woman had done that, can you imagine? She would have been dismissed as hysterical,denigrated as a lunatic, ignored for lacking credibility.

How dare you? You would not last a day. And, we are still not screaming.

We are far more in numbers than you are and your colleagues. We are, with the Millennials being the biggest generation since the Boomers, people of color, & women, the majority in the United States.We will eventually oust the usurpers, because that's what you are. People who have illegitimately twisted, upended & stolen things that do not belong to you, but to "We The People". You have buried any moral compass, or vestige of ethics, as is clearly apparent, & which history will surely confirm.

I wanted to show you my x-ray, where you can see at the top,the magnificent work my spine surgeon did to repair the damage from my assault, & perhaps suggest you contact him. But then I realized so much of your spine is missing, that I don't think even his genius could help you.

So I will say quite simply, I look forward with great pleasure to the day you & the other usurpers will be ousted from the offices you hold. The dying gasps of the good 'ole boys, & their little club of pretentious pretenders, and elitist little brats.

We are far more in numbers than you are, & it might take a little more time, but we will get there. And you won't leave in quiet dignity like Dr. Ford or any other authentic survivor, you'll leave kicking and screaming for what you think is your right to control and dominate through whatever means necessary.

I can't wait to see more of the true colors unmasked by you, your colleagues & the pretender to the Supreme Court, unmasked for all to see, as we exhale ,& thank God you are finally gone."

#metoo #neveragain #timesup are clear enough in name, acknowledgment, anger & anguish, to help us to resist & provoke change. the proven & ongoing attack on the us by a foreign adversary only adds to the reality that everyone who has refused to acknowledge & act in this administration-has violated their oath to protect & defend the constitution & the american people, & should be stripped of all power & privilege. there is no other way to read any of this...🎤

modern day alpha male:
lies, cheats, steals.consorts with hostile powers & gangsters for personal gain.scoffs at paying employees, bills & taxes. goes to extreme lengths to fabricate phony, physical ,legal & moral facades to distract, & obfuscate their indecency. bribes, blackmails & bullies anyone & everyone not in step. psychologically & physically beats & abuses their wives. believe that women are only valued when they serve on demand. that legitimate rape exists & spousal rape does not. abhors free speech when it unveils unflattering, albeit accurate terms. cultivates other alpha males, here & abroad, in solidarity who believe & actualize the same. threatens frequent temper tantrums based on whims, & insecure vanity. does not know or care about what the rule of law, or checks & balances entail, or what treason is…bravo🎤

“Addictive behavior comes in more forms than you might initially imagine; physical, psychological, societal, financial & more. Being honest with yourself will give you the best chance of success as you seek to discover how best to address what you want to change in your life.”

~Addictive behavior is personal: your body, mind & experiences are unique. So must be your way out. Make it your mission to find it. *Personalize your plan of response, making sure it addresses who you really are. Example: Don’t program anything at 7 am, if you aren’t a morning person. It will set you up for failure & demoralization.

~Do not underestimate the power of dietary changes: they have created incredible progress with even the most intense addictive tendencies & habits. *Discover your body chemistry & genetic & environmental history to help discern what will help. Example: As a person with a hyper personality & a genetic predisposition to mood swings, I know that organic foods, spices & oils dramatically ease what might otherwise be a raging spirit.

~If you are not moving somehow, someway, every day, you are cutting your chances dramatically of finding your way to a healthier life. *It does not matter if it’s walking your dog, swimming, yoga classes or weekend dancing with the girls or soccer with the boys. It is part of a necessary chemical balancing act that will reinforce good choices, habits & general lifestyle. Example: Most people, when self-medicating, have simply not yet experimented with the natural high (Dopamine, Serotonin, Oxytocin, and Endorphins) the body produces when laughing, singing, dancing, working out, meditating or enjoying the love of people & pets. Drugs & alcohol don’t even come close, & are a chronically lonely, toxic, destructive high.

~Find something to believe in that’s bigger than you. *Spiritual connection, community service, mentoring kids or the otherwise disenfranchised, saving animals. All that matters is being a productive part of a bigger picture, once you have acknowledged your difficulty. It keeps everything in relative perspective, & promotes appreciation in your everyday life, often forgotten in tougher times. Example: When you spend time working with others, especially those who are vulnerable, you not only step outside your own pain, add warmth to someone or something else, but also come away with a new set of priorities in a refreshed & motivated frame of mind, not to mention a good karma bank.

~Beware of destination addiction. *Although looking to improve is always a good thing, thinking everything will always be better somewhere else, with someone else, doing something else, is a vortex that will keep you unhappy. Look carefully in your everyday to find the activities,pets & people who make you smile. These are the pleasures to acknowledge as valuable, & upon which to build your changes.Example: Cultivate being an active participant in every aspect of life, not only taking what you need, but giving freely, & acknowledging gratitude.

~Don’t be afraid to seek the assistance that will help, not sabotage your efforts. *Groups work for some people, individual therapy for others. Still others prefer a more private support system. Be assertive in seeking back up for your plans from a source that you believe will work for you. Example: I have always been comfortable telling my tale to utter strangers. The feedback I’ve received is untarnished, & usually very valuable, mainly because strangers have no vested interest in me, & I’m not beholden taking their advice, or not.

~The body & the mind prosper when engaged in routine activities, provided they aren’t too boring. *Look for activities that can keep you motivated & engaged, so you can master your changes, without losing interest & momentum. Example: I vary yoga, long walks with my dog, & aerobic fun (salsa & other dancing, Essentrics,etc…) & change it up whenever I feel mired.

~ Do not underestimate the time needed to review, revise & reapply. *Nothing happened overnight, so don’t program your disappointment or failure by expecting instant results. Example: If you’ve lived for years with destructive habits, take your time in addressing them. I call it taking “sticky steps”, because it is indeed a series that entails a few progress/default scenarios, so do create a plan & honor your commitment to it. You are your own best advocate. But be kind to yourself along the way if at first you don’t achieve stellar results.

The best advice anyone can give themselves or others is to ask the question “Does this habit or activity add real value to my life?” Once you have your honest answer, you’ll have a better idea of what to use as catalysts to keep you moving towards a productive, happier healthier life.
